Institute for Climate and Society (iCS)

The Institute for Climate and Society (iCS) is a philanthropic organization that promotes prosperity, justice and low carbon development in Brazil. The Institute operates as a bridge between international and national funders and local partners. Consequently, iCS is part of a wide network of philanthropic organizations that are dedicated to finding solutions to the climate crisis.

iCS outlines plans of action to overcome climate problems from a social perspective. Therefore, it prioritizes measures that, in addition to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, also result in improvements in the quality of life for society, especially for those most vulnerable.​

As an independent Brazilian organization, iCS belongs to an international network of organizations that catalyse world-leading climate policy at international, national and city levels to reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases.

Together with Agora Energiewende, iCS has established E+ Diálogos Energéticos Institute as an independent energy transition think tank that can convene Brazil's diverse stakeholders to discuss the challenges and opportunities of the energy transition for the country.
